quickFilters Change Log - Version 4.2

  • The buttons on the QuickFolders "current folder toolbar" are not displayed anymore in Thunderbird 68.

  • [Bug 26657] ESR 2019 Readyness - compatibility with Thunderbird 68

    Made quickFilters compatible with Thunderbird 68 - part of the ongoing effort to future proof quickFilters for 2020. For now, this also means making the minimum requirement using Thunderbird version 60.

    It is not possible to release legacy Add-ons (which address Thunderbird versions before 60) after uploading the new "web-extension" style Add-ons which can be used on the latest version (Thunderbird 67 and higher). Therefore this will be the last release in "legacy format" -

    Older source code is available on a separate Github branch.

    • Replaced prefwindows with dialogs.
    • Use newer preferences script.
    • Replace groupbox elements with html fieldsets.
    • Use new promise-based AddonManager object.
  • The premium feature notification was not displaying the "close" button, this is now fixed.

Full version log

Version 3.11 429.0 KiB Fungerar med SeaMonkey 2.34 - 2.49.*, Thunderbird 52.0 - 60.*

<p>quickFilters Change Log - Version 3.11</p>
  • [Bug 26652] Added an option to Automatically run the freshly created filter when the filter list is not displayed. In the default workflow, the user can push the [Run Filter] button to try out the new filter. If the filter list is not shown, this option will run the filter on the originating Inbox.
  • Fixed: [Bug 26653] Skipping filter list step in assistant ignores alphabetical order option. To make sure your new filter is inserted in alphabetical order, activate Insert new Filter in alphabetical order in quickFilters Preferences under the New Filter Properties tab.
  • Removed some outdated code (extension manager)

Version 3.10 428.1 KiB Fungerar med SeaMonkey 2.34 - 2.49.*, Thunderbird 52.0 - 60.*

quickFilters Change Log - Version 3.10
  • [Bug 26643] (Premium Feature) Run filters on Local Folders Inbox automatically. With this new option, any emails that are moved to the Local Folders Inbox will be automatically processed again using the filters defined there. With Thunderbird out of the box this behavior cannot be achieve as there is no "Get new Mail" event on Local Folders.
  • [Bug 26649] Creating a new "mail list" filter throws undeclared variable exception.
  • When creating a filter from a message via right-click menu quickFilters now warns if the email is not tagged and also is still sitting in the inbox. Creating filters via the assistant is more useful when the action on the email (such as moving to a folder) has already been carried out as quickfilters can then add this action to the filter definition automatically.
  • > Added choices to skip filter editor / filter list in the filter assistant itself. This may be helpful if you update the same filter with a whitee list / black list of senders and do not want to verify or test the filter. quickFilters will display a OS specific sliding notification after a completely silent filter creation / update but this will close automatically, so no extra clicks are necessary.
  • To accelerate going through the assistant screen, the [Enter] key can now be used to step through its screens.

Version 3.9 422.6 KiB Fungerar med SeaMonkey 2.34 - 2.49.*, Thunderbird 52.0 - 60.*

  • From now on - quickFilters shows no more donation tab on update - update news are handled via the change log.
  • Added a link to quickFilters videos my YouTube channel on the support tab.
  • [Bug 26630] - optimised the quickFilters Assistant by restricting the maximum height - otherwise the merge list can grow very tall. Also the dialog used to grow too wide when certain templates were selected.
  • [Bug 26192] - Improved "mailing list" template to use the "List-id" header, where available. This header is often used by mailing lists. If the List-id header doesn't exist, the filter uses the sender's address, as in previous versions of quickFilters.
  • Backup / Restore Filters will now remember the last folder that was picked for loading / saving.
  • If filters with custom actions cannot be backed up successfully this will be now be displayed in detail.
  • Added easier Renewal logic that reads the old license date and adds a whole year even when extending license early. If your license expires within 30 days, the quickFilters Pro tab will display an "extend license" button.

Version 3.8.1 419.5 KiB Fungerar med SeaMonkey 2.34 - 2.49.*, Thunderbird 52.0 - 60.*

  • When backing up filters with custom actions, this could fail silently if necessary third party addons were missing (e.g. FiltaQuilla). quickFilters will now display an error message with a list of filters and custom actions that weren't fully saved.
  • Improved bug icon when faulty filters are found. If some filters don't run automatically, open filters list and then click the debug button. If any problematic filters are found they will then be displayed - click OK to repair the listed filters.
  • Fixed: Message popups for running filters manually stopped closing automatically.
  • Fixed the quickFolders Pro license renewal link at the fastspring shop - it was broken and redirected to the QuickFolders homepage.

Version 3.8 418.3 KiB Fungerar med SeaMonkey 2.34 - 2.49.*, Thunderbird 52.0 - 60.*

  • [Bug 26625] New filters do not automatically run when getting mail. This problem was introduced in version 2.8 by not adding an important flag to the filter type, based on the new setting "Run Manually" (and later the additional settings in the "Apply Filter when" box)

    The flags <tt>nsMsgFilterType.InboxRule</tt> or <tt>nsMsgFilterType.NewsRule</tt> have to be added to existing filters that had the "manual" box unchecked.

    You can use the new "Debug" button to track down and fix these filters.
  • Filters are now merged on import. When a filter is imported it will overwrite a filter of the same name,
    rather than creating a duplicate.
  • Fixed some layout problems (truncation) in filter assistant.

Version 3.7 404.1 KiB Fungerar med SeaMonkey 2.34 - 2.49.*, Thunderbird 52.0 - 60.*

  • [Bug 26547] Add default options for when filters should be run.
  • [Bug 26574] Filter Naming: Added configuration for customized delimiter character betweeen folder and filter name. The new default delimiter is » (right pointing double angle quotation mark)
  • Added Unicode support to Custom Template Names.
  • Description field is now automatically filled by the preselected template. Before, you had to click on one first to get the description.
  • [Bug 26579] Added message info panel in template dialog. This shows the more important headers such as subject line, from address and date in a little preview panel, making it easier to choose an appropriate template.
  • [Bug 26582]
    Backup filters not working in Thunderbird 60. (gCurrentFolder not defined)
  • Moved all links from addons.mozilla.org to addons.thunderbird.net.

Version 3.6.1 400.2 KiB Fungerar med SeaMonkey 2.34 - 2.49.*, Thunderbird 34.0 - 60.*

  • [Bug 26542] quickFilters not defined in Postbox 5.0. Some newer Javascript in quickFilters 3.5 causes it to not work with Postbox 5.0 and older versions.
  • [Bug 26543] Custom Templates: Support gathering address fields from multiple mails. This will omit collecting EMails or domains of one's own Email addresses in order to avoid bad side effects such as unintentionally archiving one's own Emails.
  • [Bug 26545] Filter Merge should be triggered when emails are tagged
  • [Bug 26548] Run Filters in folder context menu not working
  • [Bug 26549] Option to skip Filter Editor.
  • Fixed version history jumping to correct version heading for Pro Users
  • Improved "Run Filters on Folder" function for non-Inbox folders.
  • Fixed toolbar coloring and image in brighttext mode (dark themes). Also toned down the QuickFolders toolbar panel color highlight (was deep red) and text color when filter assistant is active.
  • Preselected last template in filter assistant is automatically scrolled into view.
  • (3.6.1) Custom Templates: reading headers not working when moving mail to Local Folders. Also copying search terms in Thunderbird 60 failed due to removal of some programming interfaces since version 58.

Version 3.6 400.0 KiB Fungerar med SeaMonkey 2.34 - 2.49.*, Thunderbird 34.0 - 60.*

Version 3.5 398.6 KiB Fungerar med SeaMonkey 2.34 - 2.49.*, Thunderbird 34.0 - 60.*

  • [Bug 25844] Add Backup + Restore Feature (Premium Feature)
  • [Bug 26488] ESR 2018 readiness - Make quickFilters compatible with Thunderbird 60
  • [Bug 26477] Make quickFilters compatible with Postbox 5.52 beta 6 (modern Gecko build) - as of beta 7 Postbox follows Mozilla Quantum in dropping 3rd party Addons support altogether:
    Postbox is based on Mozilla code, and as of Firefox Quantum, Mozilla has discontinued support for add-ons. As such, a decision has been made to remove add-ons functionality from Postbox at this time.

    Postbox's Signatures and Responses add-ons have been rolled into the core product. Cloud File Sharing and installable Dictionaries will be supported in future BETA releases.

    Add-ons from 3rd parties will no longer operate in Postbox, but we may opt to roll certain 3rd party add-on functionality into Postbox in the future.
  • [Bug 26486] quickFilters can't create Filter in Thunderbird versions < 47. This bug also addresses a situation where the storage configured to use a different Inbox is advanced shared server settings.

  • 3.4.1: Added a checkbox for the auto filtering manually tagged messages

Version 3.4 383.2 KiB Fungerar med SeaMonkey 2.34 - 2.49, Thunderbird 34.0 - 58.*

  • New quickFilters Pro version - no more notifications about premium features.
    Help financing the future of quickFilters.
  • Fixed [Bug 26441]
    Thunderbird 57 beta hangs on start with quickFilters enabled.
    A number of changes to the JavaScript engine necessitate various changes to the code. Most important, the changes are incompatible with the Postbox script engine (and are very hard to code around as an important construct, the for loop, which is used in a lot of places will lead to the Add-on breaking down in Postbox) - therefore this version will _not_ support Postbox.

Version 3.0.2 287.1 KiB Fungerar med SeaMonkey 2.0 - 2.39, Thunderbird 9.0 - 42.*

  • [Bug 25688] 3.0.2 Hotfix
    Creating Filter on IMAP fails after 7 attempts. This can happen during when moving mails during the quickFilters assistant being active but in some cases (3.0.1) even when it is off. It is caused by the Message Database being locked during or after the move; this fix tries to extract the message header information (needed for filter creation) before the move operation is initiated.
  • [Bug 26110] 3.0.2 Hotfix
    Tag Listener repeats Assistant multiple times
    If the "Listen for Tag changes" option is switched on and the Filter Assistant is active, this can lead to the filter assistant window being opened repeatedly.

Version 2.9 284.7 KiB Fungerar med SeaMonkey 2.0 - 2.39, Thunderbird 9.0 - 42.*

  • [Bug 25989]
    Premium Feature: Support Creation of Custom Templates
    A custom template is like a blueprint for generating new filters, and will be shown along with the other choices in the quickFilters assistant.

    To create a custom template:
    1. Go to quickFilters options (right-click the filter assistant button)
    2. Go to the Advanced Tab and after enabling [x] Custom Templates, click [Create New...]
    3. Enter the name of the custom template
    4. Edit the filter by selecting from the Custom Variables drop-down. This will create a new condition with a placeholder variable which will be replaced with the "real thing" when you create a new filter.
    5. Make sure you leave the label "quickFilterCustomTemplate: " at the start of the Template Name; this will ensure that it will be offered as choice the next time you create a filter.

    Some Detail:

    In Postbox / SeaMonkey there is no way to filter the list of filters (no search box), so when you click "Edit" beside Custom Templates, you may see _all_ filters in Local Folders. Just select the ones starting with "quickFilterCustomTemplate:" for editing.

    There is a default action of "Set Priority to Normal" as it is not possible to save a filter without any actions. Since incoming mail usually has normal priority I chose this as the lesser evil. This action will be removed and the standard action added instead: move to folder / or flag / tag as the mail that was moved / tagged when assistant was invoked.

    A typical example for a custom filter would be a filter template that moves all emails from a given domain (e.g. emails ending with @youtube.com). This can easily be created with the custom filter template and then invoked whenever a new filter has to be created.

    To create this the only thing you need to do is select Custom Variables > From > Domain of Email, and save the Custom Template. On filter creation, you will select the Template of the name you created and it would automatically create a condition "where From ends with @domainname", automatically filling domainname from the current email. If you want to hardcode other actions into the Custom Template u can do this as well, just remember to remove the "Set priority to Normal" action (unless you want to do this).

  • [FR 25877] New option to automatically select merge instead of new filter. The merged filter will be pre-selected if there is already a filter doing the same action. There is also an option to skip this screen entirely (always merge when possible)
  • [Bug 25829] Pasting filters positions wrong when search box active. If the search box
